This report shares results from Wave 11 of a national survey of consumers investigating the effects of COVID-19 on employment and income data, including employment through the crisis, income changes across the last two years, and financial security over the next three to 12 months.
Results collected during the 11th COVID-19 Survey of Consumers in January 2022 reveal that improvements observed in job losses, onsite employment, and work schedules slowed or reversed by the end of 2021. Concerns about making ends meet over the next three to 12 months continue to rise. Those concerns are now nearly as high as in the first two waves of the survey conducted in April and May 2020. More details are available in the full report.
